    What Was I Thinking??

    About 9 years ago, I had just gone thru a divorce and wasn't really looking a relationship. A co worker who I had known for many years prior asked me out and gave me his phone number. I never called him because I was still not ready for any type of dating. About a month later he...

    Once Upon A Time I Had A Narcissist Friend

    So it wasn't a big surprise that our friendship didn't end with"They stayed best friends, and lived happily ever after" though.... I learned a lot from that experience -"Narcissistic sure is a weird way to pronounce amazing." -“A sociopath is one who sees others as...

    Hidden Agenda

    I was deceived by a man whom I thought was true and kind. When my relationship with him was on the rocks he just simply said "i am selfish". I couldn't comprehend why he jumps to a relationship with a broken woman (me) with a purpose I couldn't think it is possible for a sane...

    Something I noticed when dealing with a

    narcissist is their tendency to forget where they put things. It's always somebody else's fault or responsibility. Projection is the name of the game. If they cannot find it, then you must have hid it somewhere. Or if they don't remember where they put it, then you have to time...

    I don't even understand how you can be a

    narcissist. I could give a rats *** about myself, I live to help others. If I couldn't help others my life wouldn't be worth it.

    We All Are

    and re-write my story on why I don't like narcissists due to the fact that some people misunderstood it and took it out of context. First, I want to point out that it wasn't at all contradictive, I worded it just fine. Second, calling me narcissistic when I'm not is beyond...

    They think the world revolves around them.

    Even if something has absolutely nothing to do with them, they'll put themselves at the center. And there can never, ever be a bigger victim than a nar. They can out-victim anyone.

    I see a lot of people using the term narcissist

    without truly understanding the meaning behind it. It is not someone with high self esteem or just someone who is in love with themselves. It is someone who has fallen in love with an image that is not theirs and expects others to love that false image of themselves. When...
